Foreign journalists have published fresh pictures of the long-awaited American news. The official premiere of the new Chevy Corvette will be held on July 18.
We are approaching the long-awaited world premiere of the new (eighth, C8) generation of Chevy Corvette sports coupe that will be positioned as the car of 2020 model year. Car show July 18. Camouflaged prototype of the new items with the average location of the engine not just show up in the “spy” photo and video materials, and official teasers.
The reason to write this news served fresh “spy” pictures that show a fully camouflaged prototype of the coupe C8, standing in the Parking lot in Detroit (USA). Because of the annoying masking to see nothing special. However, you can see that the rear wheels have a dual brake calipers for greater stopping power. With the engine located behind the seats, this means that the distribution of the weight of the new Corvette, is likely to undergo some significant changes, and most of the braking power on the rear axle could be related to this.
Looks like we’re looking at the test car, which had a serial body including a rear spoiler, and headlights and taillights.
Double brake callipers, increase the weight, which in turn negatively affects performance. According to rumors, additional caliper will not work constantly, since he presumably will clamp the rotor only when the electric Parking brake. Frankly, we do not believe that the calipers would be great too, as it seems too big to use it only for the Parking brake.
We can also notice the side air intakes, which seem to have fake panels to hide the real design. Cut out the side profile of the body is quite large, as one would expect from a full-fledged supercar.
